Guerlain Coque d’Or Perfumed Shimmer Powder

Guerlain Coque d’Or Perfumed Shimmer Powder ($95.00 for 0.61 oz.) is described as a “silky halo of a golden shimmer.” It’s a fine misting of gold shimmer, just as described. Guerlain says it can be used to “illuminat[e] hair, face, shoulders, and the top of the decollete.” It is a scented powder, which the brand says is a “chypre composition based on bergamot, rose, jasmine, and patchouli.” It’s very subtle when I tried wearing it all-over arms–it’s no substitute for perfume–and I only get a hint of a scent when I have my nose to my skin. It’s warm, sweet, and slightly woody with a little earthiness.

bareMinerals Luminous Hydrating Body Cream Review & Photos

bareMinerals Luminous Hydrating Body Cream ($35.00 for 6.0 oz.) is a shimmering body cream that’s supposed to be “ultrarich, non-greasy.” It’s a thick body cream–somewhere between a more typical body butter and a whipped body butter, as it’s fairly solid and isn’t going to drip out of the jar, but it spreads well and doesn’t have to be scraped out by a legitimate block o’ body butter.

Puur Lemonade Lip Scrub & Pumpkin Spice Body Butter Reviews & Photos

Purr Lemonade Lip Scrub ($5.00) tastes like sweet lemonade as the sugar granules gently exfoliate away any dead skin from the lips. It works, and it smells and tastes delicious, but the consistency is on the looser side, so I find that is very, very easily spreads so that it doesn’t seem as effective exfoliating as thicker lip scrubs. The sugars just disperse and run a bit across the mouth and just outside of it. To that end, it is gentler as there are less sugar granules in motion at once.

PCApothecary Pumpkin Macchiato Body Butter Review & Photos

PCApothecary Pumpkin Macchiato Body Butter ($6.50 for 4 oz.) is described as a “creamy spiced pumpkin blended with aromatic coffee and cream.” It’s a heavily-spiced moderately sweetened, creamy pumpkin with the roasted, nuttiness of coffee. The spices I get are nugmet, allspice, cinnamon, and a little clove–a lot like pumpkin spice mix if you’ve ever used it in baking. The consistency is creamy but airy, like a whipped body butter, and so it spreads easily across the skin. The body butter absorbed quickly on the skin–within a few minutes–and didn’t feel greasy or oily afterward. I’m a big fan of more whipped body butters, as you get the richness and luxurious texture of body butters without some of the heaviness on the skin. The scent lingers for six hours on me, and it tended to be less “pumpkin spice latte” and more pumpkin spice with an emphasis on cinnamon/allspice towards the end.

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire So Crazy! Perfumed Shimmer Powder

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire So Crazy! Perfumed Shimmer Powder ($89.00 for 0.61 oz.) is a shimmering, pale pink powder scented with a sweet cherries and creamy almond. It’s a decadent, luxurious vanity treat–by no means a must-have, but it’s a nice-to-have if you go out and dress in little black dresses. The way the shimmer dances in the light is exquisite–really–and it dances, glimmers, and sparkles all at once and looks quite lovely on the body (shoulders, decolletage, legs). The shimmer is like micro-sparkle; larger than shimmer, smaller than sparkle and glitter. On the face, I think it can be too over-the-top unless you love sparkle, but it’s a product that works really well in hair, on arms, shoulders, legs, and so on.
